, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for the president. >> has worked incredibly closely with me. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> the governor has said he has no intention of bringing romney to new jersey to survey the storm's damage. christie aides are denying any sort of rift with the romney campaign saying it is just about dealing with the storm and not about presidential politics. but one of the main political speculations here is that christie thinks romney has no chance of winning and he is setting himself up for a run in 2016. >>> romney has a good cause to be worried if the polls have anything to say about it. president obama is ahead six points in iowa. that's coming from the nbc news "wall street journal" morris poll. the president's also up by three in wisconsin and two in new hampshire. two

appreciate your generosity. >> while calling president obama's response to the storm outstanding, governor chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now people are hurting. >> that's right. there was a rumor yesterday that mitt romney might go to new jersey to survey some of the damage. chris christie was asked about that. he essentially brushed that off and wa't interested. he was interested in working with the president in relief efforts and didn't want to see presidential politics in new jersey. i thought that comment was more important that mitt romney can't show up
. >> as the ad itself says, major executives support governor romney and have point out people on the obama economic council are supporting mitt romney, because he does have a plan on day one to turn this country around in terms of jobs. and with the auto economy and everything else, you need to put people back to work. on day one, he is going to get the energy economy going and allowto allow us to have keystone pipeline opened up, and then he is going to increase economic opportunity for everybody, so that's why he's having so many people, even people on the president's own economics council are supporting mitt romney because he and paul ryan have a plan for day one to get jobs. >> but i was asking you about the jobs -- about the plan for jobs for the auto industry. and i do want to mention too that even chrysler's chief executive officer has debunked this ad. the jeeps will not be made in china. and certainly not at the expense of the american workers. chrysler is just expanding their reach. i want to clear that up. >> and that's -- the ad points that out that they are doing that. we want

president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to

. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger that is remarkable indeed especially in a race that is shaping up as a dead heat. megyn: how does that relate to what is happening in the swing states. that's a national number on the pew poll. the nationa
out of afghanistan. i did not think there is much daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. i will try to keep us out of war in syria and keep us out of the intifada -- out of pre-emptive war around the country. there are probably 10 of us who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. they believe congress declares war and not the president. there are probably a few democrats who believe that. there is a bipartisan libertarian, constitutional caucus on war issues. i have been working hard with many on the other side. i worked with senator why then, and senator -- senator wyden and senator udall and others. >> some have indicated they think you will run for president in 2016. any interest in seeking higher office? >> that depends on what happens next tuesday or a week from tuesday. i want to be involved in the national debate. i want to transform the republican party that is -- into a party that is competitive in all 50 states. from the west coast and new england, we give up 150 electoral votes to begin
on states that they considered very safe for obama, whereas governor romney is able to expand the map into states that were considered outside of that window and that includes states like wisconsin as well. that were considered safe seats -- double digit states the president carried in 2008. >> we have to let that be the last word but thanks for coming on the program. it's good to see you. >> you bet. >> susan, let's talk about the polls. gallup daily tracking poll is suspended because of sandy. but we did see a national poll that showed obama up by one, more significantly in the battleground states but some of the numbers are tightening. the gap is closing but does obama still have enough of a lead. would he still be considered when you look at all these polls in aggregate the one to be favored? >> i think if you look at the whole set of swing states, polls that president obama seems to have the small advantage, even though mitt romney is ahead by a tick in most of the national polls, that raises the prospect of a split decision. president obama winning the electoral college and mitt

. >> andrea: this is also becoming political issue on the campaign trail. strickland, the ohio governor introducing president obama. instead of leighing the hurricane politics aside he decided to use it as a chance to take a shot at mitt romney. take a listen. >> there is mitt romney who tried to fake compassion to ask people to bring food to a rally. and when they don't do it, they take $5,000 and go to wal-mart and buy food to pass out to the people coming to the rally. so he can get his picture taken loading boxes on a truck. >> andrea: that is so disgusting. >> bob: not disgusting that his campaign bought that stuff. >> andrea: he is trying to help hurricane relief victims. can't you leave politics out of it? if they criticized obama and they're not doing, there would be uproar. >> bob: the romney cam spain not doing it? >> andrea: i haven't heard romney -- >> bob: i was wrong about romney yesterday. i should have said his surrogates are the ones taking enowhere in mouse advantage of this thing -- enormous advantage of this. they went to wal-mart, they handed things to hand to romne
showing governor romney leading president obama among voter who's have already cast the ballot. our panel is back. and byron, your thoughts? >> this is a big deal. because at the same time in 2008, fwal updid the same poll. and barack obama was leading john mccain among early voters. in several key states ob dwrauma had a huge lead. he needs to do that again. romney likely to win amongst those voter who's go to the polls on election day itself. he build up a lead that his opponent can't overtake him on election day. i was in ohio. the campaign was making a huge deal. the president saying on the stump and campaign officials were saying it. people going door to door were pushing early voting. >> unless this reflects early voters in ohio going to tell us if this could with 52-46. >> that is light. -- right. ohio during this storm time, this is ads and romney ran about the auto bailout whether or not goits tok shipped to china. there has been a reaction. there has been gm and chrysler officials saying ad isn't true, it's false. a tremendous push back and more as to the obama campaign. i think
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more

the while they forget their president barack obama cut fema. megyn: the folks who are opposing governor romney in this race are talking about he wants to abolish fema. he wants to get rid of fema because of an answer he gave during a debate to john king of cnn talking about how we need to make cuts in certain programs and talked about our debt. that's my own characterization of it. he's right. fema is kinds of a catchall. a lot of times it's under turned. knowing they will have to get more money to in fact fund it. when they do that all these happy members of congress are glad to put every pork barrel project in the world into it they couldn't get vote on in a regular lay in washington, d.c. but fema isn't going to go anywhere. and mitt romney is right. there are times when you can look to the states to do a better job than washington, d.c. and that's what we need to look at. that's what he wants to do as president. he didn't say he was going to get rid of fema. he said he will look at like everything else. but he's not playing politics. conservatives who are supportive of the governmen

have any questions, you have folks in the back wearing obama for america buttons -- you are all wearing obama buttons -- wearing obama for america buttons that can tell you how to do it. folks, the president had his third and final debate with governor romney and i had my one debate with congressman ryan. [cheers and applause] you know, that last debate, i was not sure whether governor romney was there to endorse obama or debate obama. it was kind of amazing. all of those things i heard him say before, i did not hear him say again. my grandfather from scranton used to say be where -- beware of the converted. he sure sounded converted, didn't he, during that debate? what happened to mitt romney? as my granddaughter might say, maybe casper the friendly ghost took him. i don't know. [laughter] look, i hear is the truth. they have made it very clear they do not have the same view on women's rights as we do. on women's health, they want to give the power back to the insurance companies were they can charge 50% more than men. when the governor was asked in the second debate, how do you feel a
